Meaningful Motion: Biomechanics for Occupational Therapists
Meaningful Motion covers biomechanical and motor control principles and provides examples that address combining the principles of kinesiology with clinical occupational therapy practice. The text also has case studies and laboratory exercises specifically designed for occupational therapy students. The focus is on the concepts of kinesiology and excludes some of the mathematics that is used by biomechanists.
